Choose the Wallet account address you share with a community
on Apr 17, 2024

When you join a community, you share one or more of your Status Wallet addresses. This action confirms you have the tokens for token-gated communities or channels and lets you participate in airdrops or fulfil a management role.

No matter which type of community you want to join, you must share at least one Wallet account address (or address, for short) with the community's control node. If you have only one address, it's automatically selected when joining the community and you can't unselect this address.

The addresses you share are stored in the community's control node and never revealed to the community owner or members. However, the community owner might discover the address and owner indirectly.

  • You choose the Wallet account address you share with a community when you join it. You can change this address at any time.
  • Consider creating dedicated addresses for specific communities to protect your security and privacy.
  • To maintain access to a token-gated community or channel, you must share the address with the required tokens at all times.
  • When you join a community the Status app selects the role (member, admin or TokenMaster) with more privileges based on the tokens you own. You can change your role by sharing a different address.
  • Your community role might change depending on the tokens you hold on the shared address. For example, if you share an address with the TokenMaster token, you become a TokenMaster. If you unselect an address with administration tokens, you lose your admin role and become a member.
